Our Focus

Energy services businesses of the future. 

Buckthorn believes that the energy services market will present attractive investment opportunities as the transition from existing to renewable energy sources gathers pace in the context of long-term structural demand. Regardless of how the transition develops, existing sources of hydrocarbon supply will need to be appropriately managed at the same time as new energy sources are brought into the mix. Successful decarbonisation will require innovative, efficient and well-run businesses and the use of new and more sophisticated energy products, services and technologies in both conventional and renewable energy domains.

Our Approach

Helping businesses to deliver growth.

Buckthorn sees itself as a partner to its portfolio companies. We spend most of our time in the industry, talking with executives, providing strategic advice, analysing trends in the market environment, identifying areas of growth and looking for market segments that would benefit from efficiency gains or consolidation. We help the companies with whom we partner to expand their businesses, often through a broadening of their product portfolio and geographic reach, and to future-proof them by embracing the transition to the new energy economy. We look to achieve this through both organic development and mergers and acquisitions. The capital Buckthorn provides facilitates these strategic initiatives.
